[Via Satellite 01-13-2014] Harris Corporation has received $21 million in orders from a NATO country for its Falcon multiband tactical radios. The orders were received during the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

The unspecified nation is acquiring Falcon 3 AN/PRC-117G manpack and AN/PRC-152A handheld radios, which will provide special forces and army soldiers with wideband networking capabilities, as well line-of-sight, ground-to-air and tactical satellite voice and data communications. Harris radios have been sold and shipped to more than 15 allied countries.

“Falcon 3 enables high-bandwidth applications such as streaming video, simultaneous voice and data feeds, collaborative chat, connectivity to secure networks and interoperable combat net radio,” said Brendan O’Connell, president, international business, Harris RF Communications.
